*“The Feast of Ingathering” (Ex. , ; Neh. In this account, Jesus asks his own family to attend the feast telling them, "Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were, in secret. kjv|John|7:8-10|John 7:8-10.
Sukkot as a place
The name "Sukkot" appears in a number of places in the Hebrew Bible as a location:
* Sukkot is Egyptian for the place of entering into the darkness. It's the place where the Sons of Israel went to retrieve the bones of Joseph from his tomb at Auaris before leaving Egypt. It is the first encampment of the Israelites after leaving Auaris (later named Pi-Ramesse/Raamses) ("Exodus" 12:37).
* Succoth is a city east of the Jordan River, identified with Tell Deir Άlla, a high mound, a mass of debris, in the plain north of
Jabbokand about one mile from it ("Josh." 13:27). This is where Jacob, on his return from Padan-aramafter his interview with Esau, built a house for himself and made "sukkot" (booths) for his cattle ("Gen." 32:17, 30; 33:17).
* The princes of Succoth (Sukkot) refused to provide help to Gideon and his men when they followed one of the bands of the fugitive Midianites after the great victory at Gilboa. After routing this band, Gideon on his return visited the rulers of the city with severe punishment. "He took the elders of the city, and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught the men of Succoth" ("Judg." 8:13-16). Wright identifies this with Deir Άlla.
* At this place were erected the foundries for casting the metal-work for the temple ("1 Kings" 7:46).
